Salone Milan Fair – We’re Back and Inspired!

SALONE DEL MOBILE 2019
Milan, Italy

We had the privilege of attending the majestic Salone Milan Fair. And were we blown away. The Milan Design Week 2019 brought creativity, innovation, art, and pure genius into one harmonious combination of enchanting beauty. Amongst seeing creativity in every aspect of Design and Art, we were absolutely blown away by the trendsetters in the Salone del Mobile. Designers brought popping colors, extreme silvers, golds as well as the trendy green bohemian themes to the table. If you have been following our Instagram you will see we have been raving about the bright colors for a while now, and We Believe in applying bold and beautiful to a subtle simplistic design, although it sounds like an easy feat, it proves to be extremely difficult to pull off, but get your Inspiration with these gorgeous setups.

FAMA Sofas
QEEBOO

And of course We Believe in our brands! Here are some of the honourable mentions that we are proud suppliers of:

Eichholtz

Of course Eichholtz stuns wherever they go. Check out these stunning, shiney furniture sets.

Et Al. (Formerly MetalMobil)

Et Al as always providing a clean, sleek and symmetrical experience. Bringing Contrast with clean colors and splashes of mustard, red, flamingo pink and blue.

Talenti

The Prestigious Talenti gave us a bohemian homey experience. Mixing Wood and teak furniture with planters and bright pops of green, your eye never gets bored. When walking into Talenti’s Boho room, all we wanted to do was to start relaxing. The ultimate home experience.

Vondom

Vondom came in with an amazing overall indoor and outdoor experience. Giving us the entire feel of who they are. We couldn’t get enough of their planters, clean feel, and absolute comfort.

Pictured here is one of Vondom’s top designers, the wonderful Marcel Wanders. Beneath him, glimmering subtly is the new Suave Collection modular sofa.

Desiree Divani

Desiree Divani brought a high end glamorous feel to MDW2019 with a Venetian theme. When walking through Desiree Divani’s show we felt at home, but as if we just came back from walking the red carpet. Within the five hundred square meters, we had so much to look at, never too little, nor too much. The perfect combination.

Varaschin

Luxury outdoor brand Varaschin also brought a few showstoppers to this year’s Salone del Mobile. With “Tropical Forest” as their main theme, their booth this year has been dedicated to Outdoor Therapy.

We are in love with all things nature at the moment, and couldn’t stop staring at all the natural details Varaschin brought in. The addition of the trees really made us feel as if we are indeed in the jungle.

Ethimo

CORE CRUSH: RACING COLOUR

Core crush: Racing Colour

Best known for his distinctive pouring technique, Ian Davenport has made a name for himself in the art world by consistently going against the rules and doing everything he was told not to. His motive stems from the concept of art surprising the artist by not knowing what it will do, as opposed to using the traditional brush and canvas.

Art documentation by Todd-White

If his use of colour and vertical blending alone doesn’t inspire you, then these next pictures definitely will.

No, you aren’t seeing things, Ian really did team up with House of Dior to create this fashonista must have. Using syringes filled with paint on aluminum or stainless steel panels, Ian created this stunning vertical mesh of colors, free flowing and breath taking.
